City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Price war

I bet you can’t compete with these prices:

5 kg or 11lb of peppers are 1.5KM which is €0.75 or $1
7kg or 15lb of potatoes are 3KM which is €1.5 or $2
7kg or 15lb or onions are 3KM which is €1.5 pr $2

It’s a time when all people are making pickles, all sorts of relishes, salads... what not for the coming winter. Very delicious stuff.

Do you make similar stuff in your country?

Nope, can't beat those prices! My grandmother used to make that kind of stuff. Nowdays I don't think many people do it because we can buy it at the store, kinda sad.

Melbourne is very multi cultural, we get all sorts of wonderful customs and recipies from other countries, and this all filters down to the everydau Aussies. Pickles, soups, stews, stuffed peppers, etc etc. Melbournes food is fanatstic. Yum Yum!

Ok, you win. No way could I find anything to beat those prices.

I can honestly say I never have seen a 11lb bag of peppers before.

It use to be caning pickling time for people I know, but now days, I know few who do it anymore.

Hi Jazzy...I'm kind of like Felicia...convenience is key for me and my gang...just not a lot of time to spend in the kitchen...and our winters here in the Bay Area are so mild, that not much goes out of season. Guess we're lucky! ;-)

Unfortunately, I think most Americans are used to the convience of buying anything in the grocery store at any time of year.

Though I am sure that there are some people here who do canning, I never have! And I even cook at home much more than the average American.

very cheap potatoes, I live in Concepción, Chile, here 1 kg of potatoes are 100 pesos (US$ 0,2), it means that 7kg are US$ 1,4.

we can compete, but i'm afraid that sending the potatoes to Bosnia will increase the prices too much.

pozdrav za tebe
